Breakfast

My kids and I love breakfasts at the Black Bull. Not only is it delicious and affordable, the atmosphere and service make it feel like a truly home cooked meal.

Typical pub fare that was average at best but the poor service by an inattentive server was unacceptable. Our appetizer came at the end of our meal (I think our server forgot it), one order of wings came without sauce and drink refills were forgotten. Portions were good, but in today's marketplace you have to do better. The place was... More

A tired old, run down English style pub, with a selection of draft beer, but greasy food as was experienced with our fish and chips. Fries were cool and soggy with grease, with the fish texture less than "the catch of the day". Toilet was run down and in need of maintenance. Service was friendly and attentive, but the food...

We'd heard this pub had great food and went for breakfast. It was really poor, it took a long time to get food and when it came the sausage tasted off and our eggs came some extremely undercooked and others overdone. We sent some back with the expectation of a quick replacement. But when everyone else in our party had... More

My husband and I decided to give the Black Bull one more chance after our last disappointing experience. We ordered from the breakfast menu.

We have been to The Black Bull in Burlington Ontario MANY times over the past years. The pub recently changed ownership and it's definitely for the better. Although we never had a complaint previously, the new owner(s) Rob et al, have improved the atmosphere AND the food. New Years eve was EXCELLENT, both the late night buffet AND the entertainment....
